Russell Howard - Around the World

Russell Howard - Around the World


Russell Howard will be returning to first direct arena in Leeds as part of his upcoming world tour - Round The World. The new will show see Russell, wherever possible, performing 'in the round' to the audience as he plays to his existing fans and new global viewers of Russell Howard's Good News. Wonderbox, Russell's previous sell-out international tour in 2014, saw him entertain 285,000 fans at 40 shows across the UK and Ireland (in London alone he played four shows at the Royal Albert Hall, two shows at the O2 Arena and one show at Wembley Arena), as well as sold-out runs in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. "Howard's success is down to the way his comic outlook strikes a chord... He's not afraid to be silly and gently whimsical but he never disappears up his own arse. And his attitude is always sunnily optimistic, taking delight in the daft little details of his life." James Kettle, The Guardian "Perennially popular... sanguine hyperactive stand-up - with a healthy dollop of schoolyard puerility." Warren Howard, The Independent "Howard has become one of the most successful stand-ups of his generation." Ross Jones, The Telegraph
